The Archbishop served everyone, but any person or group opposed to those in power was labeled a communist or terrorist and subjected to neighborhood massacres, kidnapping and murder. But treating people with dignity should not require that we agree with them any more than fighting to save unborn babies does not mean we are at war with women. The whole country listened. No prayer fully expresses our faith.
